That aticle of Swellnet about The Drfiter is spot on. Yeah, I really liked the Surfer cover too. There’s also a good photo feature called double take in that issue.

The genius of that cover isn’t Julian… Nug, read the top headline.

“Surf like Slater”. Let me guess, 3 easy steps…

Which leads to the million dollar question… would you rather surf like Slater for the next 10 years or be where is penis has been for the past 10 years?

If you surf like him for the next 10 years, your penis will be just fine Howard.

Sure, his head is a bit poofed-up from his recent win in pseudo Pie, but my backside rider is not suing anyone.

And Andy? Who’s he kidding? He ought to sue himself for being a knuckelhead pill popper.

Kids, take it from Aye Eye. Hillbilly Heroin and beer does not mix well.

The Drifter should be renamed The Splifter.

What a waste of time, absolute borefest.
